Hideyoshi Toyotomi began construction of Osaka Castle in 1583. Construction was completed just prior to his death. His family (the Toyotomi clan) held the area until Tokugawa took over in 1615 and the Edo Period began. The Hokoku Shrine was built in his honor on the Osaka Castle grounds late in the 19th Century.

A two-day volleyball tournament gets underway today in Eugene featuring some of the best teams in the country. Matches will take place at the Matthew Knight Arena and will be broadcast on the Pac-12 Network. Besides the University of Oregon, the other teams are coming from the University of Florida, University of Nebraska, and University of Texas. Nebraska is ranked #1, and Texas is #2 in the country.
Kvelertak’s Eriend Hjelvik @ Roskilde Festival 2016
I intended to see Kvelertak back in 2014 with Mastodon and Gojira. A photo pass never materialized for that show, though, so I didn’t go. Strangely, I still got to see Kvelertak and Gojira together. It just took an extra two-plus years and a trip to Denmark to have the experience.
Kvelertak’s show was live streamed on Red Bull TV. Sadly, I can’t find it on the internet. Anyone have a copy or URL they can point me to?
